Not a rock track, per se. But still a great song to listen to.

In fact, many of the tunes listed here qualify as Indian and not "mid-Eastern."

Not quite rock (although I've heard a killer hard rock cover), but *man* this song and video just cooks:

The Tea Party from Canada owns, when it comes to rock infused with Middle Eastern themes.

If you don't have Passion, Peter Gabriel's score for The Last Temptation of Christ, buy it immediately.

Not necessarily rock (although it came at the period he was arguably the most accepted by a rock audience), but "Around The World In A Day" by Prince off the album of the same name is quite Middle Eastern sounding, also the beat to "Life In Technicolor"/"Life In Technicolor II" (essentially the same song but with lyrics) by Coldplay as well.

Agreed, but you're getting quite far afield of the rock genre.

Hardly THE original. The Kinks had the amazing "See My Friends" which predated "Norwegian Wood" by several months.

And neither were Middle Eastern-themed anyhow.
